Tibet-in-exile leader urges people around Dalai Lama to remain alert amid 'Chinese poison plot' rep
New Delhi, May 21 (ANI): Tibet's exiled government in India has urged people living and working around the Dalai Lama to remain on alert after the spiritual leader warned of a Chinese plot to kill him.
Ngodup Dongchung, security minister for the Tibetan exiles based in Dharamsala, said a cabinet meeting of officials over the weekend reviewed security arrangements and pledged to redouble vigilance.
"We still like to remain very cautious," The Los Angeles Times quoted Dongchung, as saying.
"Of course we're working closely with the Indian government on this," he added.
The Dalai Lama, 76, recently claimed that Chinese agents have trained Tibetan women for a mission to kill him.
He said that he had been passed reports from inside Tibet warning that Tibetan women would poison him while posing as devotees seeking his blessings.
The exiled government said that although the Dalai Lama may not take the threat seriously, which it added has not been verified, his security detail does.
Meanwhile, China has denied the claims, arguing that they could have carried out an attack earlier if they wanted to.
They added that this disclosure by the Dalai Lama was nothing more than an "insidious trick." (ANI)
